The Inherent Right of ALL People to
Alter or Reform Government.
The Right Upon Which All Other
South Dakota Government's Criminal Interference
With The People
This tragedy in South Dakota must be
treated as a plague, and if it is not stopped immediately in its
it will contaminate the election
of this entire
It is now one month
since disaster struck in South Dakota November 7th, Election Day.
Government is often referred to as "criminal" throughout the country, but never
in our wildest imagination did we ever expect to see such blatant, widespread
criminal activity by the entire government of a supposed quiet, small, peaceful
state like South Dakota. But our worst nightmare did happen November 7th as
But first, on behalf
of National J.A.I.L., we recognize Bill Stegmeier who sponsored J.A.I.L. for the
2006 ballot, giving the measure "wings" to fly by successfully having collected
46,800 signatures --13,000 more than needed-- for placement on the South Dakota
ballot as "Amendment E." Throughout the campaign, Amendment E was ahead in
the polls by 3 to 1, and even four days before the election, Amendment E
was still ahead by 11 percent based on the perverted explanation by the Attorney
General appearing on the ballot (also explained below).
The people of the
J.A.I.L. organization throughout the country are grateful to Bill for
sacrificing a generous part of his substance ($170,000) to allow the People to
take their first step in exercising their right and duty to amend their
government when they deem it necessary to assure, for the future, the protection
of their inherent rights.
Little did Bill, or his associates, know what was lying ahead that would thwart that effort. The Declaration of Independence states that "when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce [the People] under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." The South Dakota Constitution provides in Article VI, §26 "All political power is inherent in the people, and all free government is founded on their authority, and is instituted for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right in lawful and constituted methods to alter or reform their forms of government in such manner as they may think proper. ...."
Now that's the
authority upon which Bill and the People of South Dakota relied "to alter or
reform their forms of government in such manner as they may think proper."
Amendment E was such manner as the People thought proper, as stated in its
Preamble: "We, the People of South Dakota, find that the
doctrine of judicial immunity has the potential of being greatly abused; that
when judges do abuse their power, the People are obliged - it is their duty - to
correct that injury, for the benefit of themselves and their posterity. In order
to insure judicial accountability and domestic tranquility, we hereby amend our
Constitution by adding these provisions as §28 to Article VI, which shall be
known as 'The J.A.I.L. Amendment.' "
The right of the
People of South Dakota to seek accountability of their judiciary pursuant to
Article VI, §26, of their State Constitution, is contingent upon yet another
right-- their right to vote. Again, the South Dakota Constitution provides in
Article VII, §1 "Right to vote. Elections
shall be free and equal, and no power, civil or military, shall at any time
interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage."
One would think that
with all of that in place, having collected 46,800 signatures for the ballot,
and running 3 to 1 in favor of the Amendment throughout the campaign
until four days before the election, still running 11 percent in favor, that
the People would be able to successfully pass this Amendment on November
The very institution
that the People of South Dakota were seeking to alter or reform (they have the right in lawful and constituted methods to alter or
reform their forms of government in such manner as they may think proper)
is the one that prevented the People from carrying
out that right! And the very power that is not to interfere with the
People's right to vote (no power, civil or military,
shall at any time interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of
suffrage) is the power that did interfere with the
voting process! What is this but "a design to reduce [the People]
under absolute despotism" whereby the People have the right and duty "to throw
off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security"?
What do the People do when the despotic government blocks the
People from altering or reforming it by interfering with the voting
process? That, folks, is
where we're at right now!
Fraud by Attorney General Larry
The most serious
official misconduct regarding Amendment E on the ballot was the propaganda
appearing at the heading of the measure as the "Attorney General Explanation"
fully discussed prior to the election in our JNJ South Dakota
2006 Ballot Contaminated. The South Dakota voters
have a cause of action, both civilly and
criminally, against Long for his misrepresentation of Amendment E
right on the ballot itself. The Amendment
itself doesn't even appear on the ballot for the voters to read for themselves
to compare before actually casting their vote on it. The only thing the
voters were allowed to vote "No" or "Yes" on was the "Attorney General
Explanation" --not the Amendment as written. It's a blind
vote! Was the J.A.I.L.
Amendment honestly presented to the South
Dakota voters by that official "explanation"
written by the Attorney General who, by the way, is legal counsel for
the judiciary, the very subject of the
Amendment? As counsel for the judges, that "explanation" is
therefore the voice of the judges. Where is the People's voice? Where is
even the People's opportunity
to have a voice? There was none-- there was
no due process of law! "No state shall make or enforce
any law which shall ... deprive any person of life, liberty, or property,
without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the
equal protection of the laws." Amendment XIV, section 1, U.S.
Criminal Violation of Election Laws by South Dakota
One of our readers,
Bob Lokey, wrote:
The very criminals that committed
these atrocities against the liberties of the American people should be the
most afraid of themselves. Strangely, they are not. They probably all
told one another and themselves that this was just a "one time thing" where
"everything simply must be done to defeat this threat to our monocracy
irrespective how criminal."
The truth is, the very next
challenge (regardless how large or small), to the absolute monocracy they
occupy, will be but another "we must commit every act within human
ability to kill this threat irrespective how criminal we have to be." Thus,
no matter how many challenges come one after the other, or how large or small,
these state criminals will meet them the same way, the whole time telling
themselves, "We are only being criminals this one time for 'the
public' good." Then they rig the ballot boxes and lie, cheat and steal to defeat, not their immediate
opponent(s), but the people
Yes, this tragedy in South Dakota must be treated as a
plague, and if it is not stopped immediately in its tracks, it will contaminate the election process of this
